Why Can't My Blog Look Like This

This blog makes mine look like something the dog barfed up.

Joel,

That painting a day blog is very pretty. It is run by either a lurker or a boodler since they quoted you yesterday, which is probably how you found it. Airport lounge ego-surfing seems like a pretty benign activity.

Your blog can look like that. That template is one of the canned default choices used by Blogger (a subsidiary of Google) called Minima Black. It also comes in blue and ochre. My good friend Mo MoDo uses the Minima White template.

Blogspot hosting is free. The templates have customizable widgets so that you can have a blog up and running in under ten minutes. I know, I have. You can even run Adsense ads on them. The Dowd Report has made nearly four bucks since it started. My goal is to earn a frapaccino a week off of it.

Your corporate overlords might have a problem with you ditching all the banner ads, pop-ups, and flying pizzas that vainly try to turn WaPo.com into a profit center. HuffPo is just barely turning a profit and Arianna doesn't even pay her bloggers.

But the news is good. 5.2 billion dollars were spent on online advertising last quarter.

Florida is trying to get the Supreme Court to approve an execution, notwithstanding the Court's apparent intention not to allow any by lethal injection until it reviews a pending case.

I guess the Court's expected action will be followed by grandstanding about those horrible unelected liberal judges.

The Dick Meyer piece on "Tell Me You Love Me" is pretty good, and he makes some good points. However, I think toward his conclusion he misses the point that Dave and Katie do indeed love each other, and their relative inarticulateness is no reason for divorce. I think almost every viewer would say they "like" both Dave and Katie as people. Any of us would be friends with them.

Most viewers see Carolyn as very manipulative, and the word most commonly used is "b1tch." I think that is a bit too facile. Meyer claims she is unemotional, but I don't agree at all. It is true she doesn't yell and scream and carry on, and cry at the drop of a hat, and yes, she is manipulative. But I think it is clear from all she's been through with the infertility testing is that she is emotionally drained. And now she's had a miscarriage, and discovered that her husband is indeed a cold-hearted jerk with abandonment issues. I don't blame her for being shell-shocked-- that's what she is.

Jamie is just plain messed up, emotionally, but I don't think it is a permanent condition. (I must have known 20 people like her.) Meyer's analysis of her is correct, but I don't think she's a lost cause.

What I like about the show is that there are portrayals of many, many things that go in inside a marriage or a relationship that have never been seen on TV or in the movies before (and which have nothing to do with the s ex scenes per se, but a lot to do with s ex itself). The Hallmark channel couldn't in a million years portray infertility, or promiscuity, or a sexless marriage the way this show has done. And for all the massive infusions of "s ex" on television and movies, either as porn, or T&A, or titillation in Grey's Anatomy, or fodder for Jerry Springer or Dr. Phil or Dr. Ruth, not one single show anywhere actually talks about s ex itself as a component of a relationship in a serious, adult, fictional way. That's why this show is groundbreaking. (And when it does show actual s ex, it shows it the way it really is, not as some ridiculous porn fantasy, nor as a metaphor with Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr rolling around in the surf, which is to say, it often isn't...well...sexy. It gives an entirely new meaning to "reality TV.")

Funny you should mention bookofjoe.com, just yesterday he responded personally to one of the spammish comments I had made on a Dowd-related post of his. Nice guy.

His blog has a very clean sharp look, but he's a hobbyist blogger as well. Once you go down the ad supported path, the content gets squeezed tighter than than a tube of toothpaste at a miser's convention.

yellojkt, I definitely do that ego-stroking-link-surfing thing, though in this case my friend Krisse in Florida emailed me the link to the Tilly blog. My momentary serotonin boost quickly gave way to the realization that Tilly is probably her fabulous friend in upstate New York that I met something like 20 years ago, and that Krisse probably sent said friend the original A-blog item. So it's all very in-the-family. Which is different from actual success. And thus the serotonin drains away, leaving only the neurochemical scuzz. Does that make sense.

Here's a monstrously good dish:
Pasta, topped with creamed spinach, topped with scallops sauted in bacon fat, topped with bacon crumbles, it all topped with hollandaise sauce. At that point, (the pinnacle) the sprinkle of parmesan just becomes overkill (but pretty good, actually.)

TBG started the hunt, but I've continued. She sent me an article about *who* won that Valvoline award, the circumstances surrounding it and the significance of that win.

I found fan-pictures of the driver's trophy cases (in his MUSEUM) with at least 1 matching platter. Of course I wrote to them!

The whole time I was married my BIL tried to make off with this platter, hoping to discover the driver and perhaps meet him (and return *my* platter). He'd die if he knew.

I don't look closely at either what my dogs eat (outside the food bowls) either before or after it is ingested. However, the first Kit sentence did get me musing on the things Loose Dog (G*****n Animal #1) brings home. He likes to visit my relatives every day. Recently he's dragged home a broiler pan, a jacket, a feather pillow (now deceased), shoes, a heavy wood cutting board, and a large bag of rags. Were it not for the teeth marks, I would suspect he'd developed retractable opposable thumbs. I guess this proves he really is a Retriever.

Trying to catch up a bit:

bc -- both your Henry V and you photo of the Nuke Nuptials are great! I'm glad Joel posted the pic.

As for redheads, did someone mention the Little Red-Haired Girl from Peanuts?

As far as newspaper corrections go, I love this one from the Virginian-Pilot published 100 years after the Wright Brothers flight. I'd post a link, but they've taken it down from their Web site. I don't remember if I read about it here or from Weingarten or where, but it is bears repeating. The first two sentences are great and it just runs on from there:

***Published in the Virginian-Pilot December 17, 2003***

A story and headline in the Dec. 18, 1903, Virginian-Pilot [Hampton Roads, VA] contained errors.

Orville Wright was the pilot for the first flight of the Wright Flyer. It was not Wilbur, whose name is not spelled Wilber.

The plane's wing span was 40 feet, 4 inches. The wings were 6 feet 2 inches apart vertically and 6 feet, 6 inches from front to rear. They were covered in muslin, not canvas.

The engine rested on top of the lower wing. It did not hang below it.

The propellers had two blades each, not six. They both were mounted on the rear side of the wings. There was no propeller providing upward force.

Rudders in the front and rear and warping of the wings controlled the plane. There was not a single, huge fan-shaped rudder that could be moved side to side and raised and lowered.

The pilot lay prone on the lower wing. There was no pilot's car.

The Wrights have always said they were equal inventors of the machine. Wilbur never took credit as the chief inventor. The brothers had no plans to build a much larger machine and never did.

Their success came after four years of work, not three.

They took one trip to the Outer Banks in the summer and two trips in the fall prior to 1903. They did not spend almost the entire winter, fall and early spring on the Outer Banks for three years.

They arrived on Sept. 26 in 1903, not on Sept. 1.

The plane took off under its own power after traveling 40 feet down a rail on flat land. It was not sent down a slope after Orville Wright released a catch. The engine was started before takeoff. It was not started after the plane had rolled halfway down a 100-foot hill.

The plane flew 120 feet, 8 to 10 feet off the ground in a straight line on the first of four flights. It did not soar 60 feet in the air. It did not circle and fly 3 miles over breakers and dunes. It did not tack to port, then to starboard.

The plane's ground speed was 8 to 10 mph. Its air speed was 30 to 35 mph. It did not fly at 8 mph.

The plane hit the ground nose-first after its fourth flight, damaging the front rudder mechanism, and was later destroyed by a gust of wind. It did not descend gracefully and rest lightly at a spot chosen by the aviator after one attempt.

Five onlookers helped the brothers and watched the flights. A small crowd did not run after the plane and give up after it outpaced them.

The flight took place at the foot of Kill Devil Hill. Orville Wright did not declare the flight a success before a crowd on the beach after the first mile. The flights were not on the beach.

Wilbur Wright was 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed 140 pounds. His eyes were blue-gray and his hair dark brown. He was not 5 feet 6 inches tall and did not weigh 150 pounds. He did not have raven-hued hair. His eyes were not deep blue.

Orville Wright was 5 feet 8 inches tall and had blue-gray eyes and dark brown hair. He did not have black eyes. He did not have sandy blond hair.

PJ -- The Wright brothers lived in my neighborhood for several years when developing airplanes on the guv-nickel. College Park Airport is the oldest continuously operating airport in the nation.

OK -- sorry for you, that you have to ask. Good that you did. Many here will sigh yet wish you well, and a few will pray for you.

Better than a book is Alanon, but I bet you know this. Please see a therapist, because you need someone with perspective to share this with. You need to take very good care of. Bet you know this.

But here is a great book that I think everyone can benefit from:
_The Spirituality of Imperfection: Storytelling and the Search for Meaning_ by Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham

"Discovering an ancient spirituality in a roomful of drunks may seem strange, even paradoxical..." Paperback, about 14 or so, available at Amazon.

I would take this book to a desert island with me, along with Kristin Lavransdattir (hi SonofCarl) and Hitchhiker's Guide, and John Crowley's Little-Big....

The book is not religious; however the book is about the great stories of all our traditions that help us make sense of the unsensible. Storytelling is part of what works at AA meetings.

And alcoholism is a madness, and a nightmare for all, especially those who love the person caught it the allure. God bless you.

Sorry.

True, OK could wind up with "Self-help through Prisms and Chakra-channeling."

Not that there's anything wrong with channeling chakras, as long as you do it in private.

I'd probably go with Al-Anon and go from there.
http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/english.html

The realistic thing is that no book can really tell you if you're doing the right thing by a specific person. Everybody's individual and some alcoholics have additional problems that can complicate the "enabling"/ "support" picture.

Basically, it's their life to wreck in the end, no matter how supportive you are or not. If you're family, you get dragged along for the ride, sadly enough.

If you're really not sure what to do, check out counseling to vent and get a professional perspective.

Above all, remember you got enough problems of your own, you don't need to go all out for somebody else's problems if they refuse to work on their own problems themselves.

Be yourself. Be OK.

All of this is to say that I don't actually have any book suggestions, but I'd look for something written by a guy with a degree in psychology and who's done counselling. Ph.D. or M.D. should help narrow it down, or surf Amazon for good recommends.
